Giants Causeway Tours - Join Us On A Tour of the Giant's Causeway
The Giant's Causeway is one of the most distinct and popular tourist destinations in Northern Ireland. It is a large area where approximately 40,000 basalt columns are clustered. They rise out of the sea of the Antrim Coast and are one of the most beautiful and natural areas in the country. Surrounded by mystery, history, and rich with natural beauty, it is a sight you don’t want to miss on your visit to Northern Ireland.
Today, the Giant’s Causeway visitor centre attracts more than 600,000 visitors annually. People come to take in the natural and unique beauty of the area. Whether you believe local legends or chalk them up to folklore, the rock formations are a unique natural wonder to behold. The folktales say that the formation was built by an Irish warrior and giant..
...Finn McCool. He is said to have laboured tirelessly over the construction in hopes of bringing his girlfriend from Scotland over to Ireland. Others speculate he used a shovel and pick to create this path across the sea, motivated by the desire to face and eventually beat his rival, Benandonner.
The variations of tales add an interesting story and touch of adventure to tours offered in the area, although science has a different explanation.
Geologists believe that the Causeway was created by an increase in volcanic activity millions of years ago. The rocks have been dated to 50-60 million years ago and their unique look is said to have formed through the heating and cooling process. When molten rock rose through small fissures in the earth’s surface, the uniquely shaped and very distinct lava plateau formed. The lava cooled quickly, contracting and leading to different cooling rates between rocks. These contrasts created the formation of the basalt columns.
The ‘Giant’s Eyes’, seen as circular formations in the causeway, were formed through erosion over time. Less progressed weathering can be identified in rocks by their reddish bands of colour. In addition to these geological wonders, the area is home to rich aquatic ecosystems, with colourful lichen, marine life, birds, and distinct plants.
This beautiful site is now declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, drawing even more visitors to marvel at its distinct landscape each year. If you are planning any tours of Ireland, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to see this enchanting sight. Booking a tour is the best way to learn about its history, local significance, and fully appreciate the unique beauty the area has to offer.

Some of our recent customer reviews...
Amazing tour! People from the company are very friendly and helpful. The bus driver took us to very beautiful places and explained a bit the history behind each one. I totally recommend !
Loved this tour!! Our driver (Marty?) was wonderful, very friendly and knowledgeable and kept everything on schedule and organised. He told us all about the places we were visiting as well as the history and landmarks of the towns we drove through. He also dropped everyone off at their individual stops and hostels on the way home
Myself and family went on the Giants Causeway tour with Allen's Tours, it may not be a luxury coach unless you like the 70's but what the coach lacked in modernisation the driver Phil certainly made up for in his humour and wit, he bent over backwards in helping everyone and certainly made for an extremely enjoyable tour
What we found was a very courteous team of helpful staff who where exactly where they said they would be and when they said they would be.
Our guide was funny and genuinely warm for £16 for a full day of visits and commentary you couldn't ask for more. The closest competition wanted £35 for the same tour.
